Threshold Spaces

It is a time of many endings and beginnings for me, a threshold space as I let go and embrace again and again.  I am making more room for my Abbey work and that fills my heart with joy.  I find it is requiring a lot of energy for me to be fully present, so unfortunately this space is getting a bit neglected for the time being

In another week or two there will be a new design to this website which I am very excited about.  After four years it is time for some updating and a new look that I hope you like as well.  I have been receiving wonderful emails inquiring as to when fall sessions of my online classes will be available and the dates will be posted in early June.  I have decided to hold off on registration until August though.  If you’d like to receive first notice when registration opens, please subscribe to my email newsletter. When the website launches I will be sending out a free gift to all of my email newsletter subscribers as a way of thanking you for your support of my work.

I will also be taking some sabbatical time this summer to rest and restore so that when autumn comes I will be fully replenished to give my whole heart to this monastery without walls I love so much.

More details to come on all of the above. I just wanted to offer a brief update.

I am leaving tomorrow to co-teach our five-day Awakening the Creative Spirit intensive for another marvelous group.  Are you longing to be awakened?  Do you desire to integrate creative experience into your soul care ministry? Consider joining us and a small group of kindred spirits November 7-12, 2010 here in the beautiful Northwest where sea, forest, and mountains kiss.  Registration is currently open for this program.   Please email me if you are interested in joining us.
